During their Colchester show Michael and Alfie will perform music from their successful albums Together Again and Back Together.

Sue Lissimore, Colchester councillor responsible for commercial services, said the performance was a huge acquisition for the town.

She added: “It’s fantastic news the nation’s favourite musical duo will be performing in the wonderful Castle Park this summer.

“We’re sure audiences will flock to hear the much-loved singing sensations belting out everyone’s favourite numbers from Broadway showstoppers to pop songs.

“It’s an event music-lovers just won’t want to miss.”

The promoters of the event are equally as excited with the singing sensations' forthcoming gig. 

They said: “We are so looking forward to Ball and Boe joining our spectacular weekend of music in Colchester, for a sundown of classic hits.

"The last couple of years has been so challenging and it will be amazing to see everyone Together Again."
